Motorcycle accident injuries are potentially compensable

Just the thought of getting in a crash makes most motorcyclists cringe. This is because even the smallest of fender-benders can lead to catastrophic injuries or destruction to property. Liability can fall on the shoulders of a motor-vehicle driver if they failed to exercise due care leading up to the accident. Motor-vehicle drivers sometimes argue that they didn't see the motorcyclist before the accident.

This is usually irrelevant as it is a driver's responsibility to be aware of their surroundings, even if motorcyclists were in their blind spot. Keep in mind, it is possible that a motorcyclist could contribute, in some way, to their accident injuries. However, due to comparative negligence laws, it is possible for a motorcyclist to recover for another driver's portion of the fault. Since injuries can cost in the thousands of dollars in medical bills and lost wages, even a 50% determination could mean significant recovery of costs.

It is likely an emotional and confusing time as the victim recovers from their injuries. It's possible that the negligent driver could have been engaging in distracted driving behaviors or even intoxicated driving behaviors. A full investigation can help to discover if this was a factor in the motorcycle accident that affected you or your family member. At Bradley, Drendel and Jeanney, we are here to help answer your questions and guide you through the process of seeking reparations after a motorcycle accident injury.

Injuries could range from mild, like road rash, to severe, like spinal cord injury. Many motorcyclists involved in an accident fall somewhere in-between. Whatever your ailment, it is advised to seek the best medical care available. Only then can one hope to fully recover. Off-setting those expenses by assigning fault to another driver through a personal injury suit is key to making the finances work.
